Young Muhammad Musa aims to succeed in Test cricket


Lahore: The young pacer Muhammad Musa is eyeing to succeed in Test cricket and only wants to focus on performing in the elite format of the game only.

The 19-year-old made his Test debut against Australia in Adelaide but was dropped from the side in the two-match home series against Sri Lanka.

“My focus is on Test cricket and my aim is to perform consistently in this format of the game too,” Musa said in a presser in Lahore.

The right-arm pace bowler is working hard on his fitness and is hoping that he will get a chance to make a comeback against Bangladesh. ” I am working hard on my fitness, form and will try to perform better if I get a chance to play against Bangladesh,” he added.

He is happy that he is nurtured under a great fast bowler and bowling coach of Pakistan team, Waqar Younis. ” It feels great to coached by Waqar Younis, with the arrival of him my performance has improved greatly as I have learned a lot of new things from him in the past few months” he maintained.

Musa was in awe of T20I skipper Babar Azam and termed him as the best batsman. “Babar Azam is one of the greatest batsmen of today’s era and will try to get him out if I get a chance to bowl to him,” he added.

It must be noted here that Bangladesh will play the first Test of the two-matches series from February 7-11 in Rawalpindi. They will come back after PSL 5 in Karachi to play one-off ODI and last Test of the series.
